The theme of the solo exhibition is architecture and features artworks that encompass the artist’s unique observations of spaces, structures and geographies. On display are nuanced compositions, featuring sequential drawings and reverse-painted transparent sheets, underscoring the artist’s affinity towards cities and their multi-layered identities.
The show presents a body of work across six series. With Drawn Timelapses, a series of sequential drawings that are presented in tandem with a video, the artist reflects on the idea of condensed time, with structures being in a constant state of flux. Here, the artist shares a zoomed-in experience of elements that form complex city structures and their temporal progression. Each drawing on a single page is created in relation to the one that came before it, thus developing a moving image. Discomfort (2022) (a series initiated during the first Covid-19 lockdown and part of his previous solo – You Are All Caught Up), looks at the basic shape of a home morphing from one uncomfortable form to another – examining its transformation through time – physically as well as through lived experience.
The exhibition is on view at TARQ’s new space at KK chambers.
TARQ, Ground Floor, KK (Navsari) Chambers, 39B AK Nayak Marg, Fort, Mumbai - 400001, Maharashtra, India.
